Think of it as an orchestra with a single unit conductor controlling and managing a large ensemble of components from a centralized viewpoint.

The term orchestrator is usually used to describe centralization of provisioning, deploying, triggering, monitoring of automated processes.

2.) Sharing knowledge is so much easier when it is digital.

Best Practices:

  • Leverage on devOps toolchain for seamless end-to-end management.
